Sustainability Matters to the Cool Chain Association

Sustainability Matters to the Cool Chain Association

Shippers will offer insights into challenges facing the temperature-controlled supply chain at the Cool Chain Association’s Americas Conference, Sustainability Matters.

The Produce Marketing Association and California-based berry shipper Driscoll’s will join speakers from companies including Air France KLM, Cargolux and Able Freight for a two-day event focusing on a sustainable cool chain.

Thought leaders and innovators will share insights into new developments and delegates will take part in a tour of facilities at Los Angeles International Airport, as well as a live demonstration of the Kold Kart temperature-controlled air cargo dolly.

Stavros Evangelakakis, chairman of the Cool Chain Association says: “The business landscape is rapidly changing, with technology bringing new opportunities, and evolving consumer and customer demands. At the same time, there is a pressing need for us to address sustainability issues, from better caring for our environment, to ensuring a responsible and healthy future for our industry, and for the people who rely on it from first, to final mile.”

Evangelakakis, who is also global product manager pharma and perishables at Cargolux adds: “Our cool chain industry must ensure product integrity, learn from each other, collaborate, innovate, digitalise and share data to embrace the people, profit, planet framework and drive sustainable development for both pharma and perishables.”

The event will take place from 18-20 November at the Belamar hotel on Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles, California.
